On this day in 2008, police dispersed about 150 activists from the Women’s Coalition of Zimbabwe (WCoZ) and the Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) who were holding a demonstration in Harare using teargas. The demonstrators were calling for a resolution to the political crisis that had put Zimbabwe in a stall after the 2008 general elections and political negotiations which were failing at the time.
